This is a small farmhouse attraction that is beautifully restored. There is a farmhouse, gift shop and small garden. The building is filled with artifacts that depict what her early life would have been like and one of the rooms highlights her impact on women’s rights, specifically the right to vote. Worth the time if you are in the area.

This is a wonderful little museum that has been painstakingly restored and depicts the early life of Susan B. Anthony. It's worth the trip to Adams for a trip back in time to see the contributions of Susan B., and the impact she had on women's rights.

This small home is the birthplace of Susan B. Anthony, a fascinating and important figure in American history. The story of the her life (and that of her parents) was ably told--both by creative curatorial choices and a great tour guide who really made their lives and time period come alive--even for my three teenagers.

This museum is walkable from Mount Greylock Inn where we stayed. There are guided tours (but check the hours before going). The curator/docent is amazingly well-informed about everything to do with Susan B. Anthony's life, and that of her parents and the area. There's a terrific gift shop, too. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

In Williamstown, we found a rack card for the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace and decided we had to make it part of our trip back to the NYC area. We were so glad we found it! The site is the old farmhouse that once belonged to the Anthony family. It's up on a hillside above Adams, MA. The curators have... More
